Pattern: Warm Hearted Mittens by Rose Hiver (FREE PATTERN!)
Yarn: Red: Little Knits Sockulent in colorway 11 Navy: Lang Yarns Bebe in Navy Blue (OMG this yarn has been in my stash FOREVER.)
Needles: US 2
Notes: You'll note FOUR successful attempts at a Latvian braid!
This is the first mitten I've ever knit that was just a breeze. No stops and starts- just straight forward knitting and perfection. Warm hearted left ME warm hearted and it was a great pattern to knit. I'm going to be Rose Hiver knitting junky I think!
The pattern is just lovely and I'm so pleased that they knit quickly and beautifully.
These were finished on Sunday and a quick block later they were ready for Miss Esther. Unfortunately she wasn't in class when I planned to gift them to her, so I'm hoping that the school will be able to forward them on to her. I will miss her.
Also- in the mind set of being warm hearted, I have completed my most recent sections of the Butterflies charity blanket for WCOBB. They're bright and colorful, and sadly STILL haven't eaten up all the extra spare green and yellow acrylic yarn I've got in my stash!
And NOW- now I can indulge in a little frivolous knitting..... what to knit now?!
